Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

Accepting Winter

OK, let me purge it from my system: I absolutely hate the winter and I hate the cold.  Every winter I ask myself how I came to live in Pittsburgh (which I actually love during all the other seasons). There, I feel better now, having got that out....and ready to move on to making some winter photographs.  Every year I struggle with getting out in the cold.  Every year I do it a couple of times.  This year I intend to do it more than a couple of times, particularly if it snows and particularly if it gets cold enough for Lake Arthur to freeze over.

To motivate myself, I am posting one of my favorite winter shots (from an admittedly small pool)!
